I haven't heard anything but one of the last times we heard/seen something it was with what seems to be a production model C-HR under camo. So my guess is in the coming weeks and months we might be hearing some things and will see an uptrend in news being rolled out.
at this rate is isn't much longer from now and anyone who has gone as far as joining this forum and putting in that extra bit of effort to know about the vehicle might not mind waiting. It's a purchase you'll have to live with for at least a few years from date of purchase, better make it right.
for sure everyone is at a different stage with their current vehicle, some needing something very soon and others that can wait well beyond when the iR will release. at the end of the day if waiting is going to be a problem, don't wait. plenty of good options available right now.
Being able to do it yourself or the ability to pay a good independent shop to do the work is a good way to go. At least then over the long haul you'll have a good vehicle, or just all the things that factor into a positive outcome.
Not all shops are upfront about what needs to be done.
But even just being informed enough to know what to check or knowing what needs to be replaced is good enough. That much less of a chance for some tech to play guessing games and changing parts that don't need to be changed.
